Yesterday (August 11, 2022) was Raksha Bandhan and we celebrated that day with great fun and enthusiasm. On this day brothers and sisters come together and spend the day with love, laughter; And of course, loads of food. We prepare a variety of delicious dishes for our siblings which include a variety of fried foods, sweets and much more. And let’s agree, we go on a binge spree putting all our diet ideas aside. It later makes us feel heavy from within. This is why experts recommend doing a post-festive detox the next day. A proper detoxification after festivals helps us to cleanse the body, regulate digestion and metabolism. When we talk about detoxification, the first thing that comes to our mind is herbal tea. Tea, made from healthy herbs and spices, fills us with many essential nutrients, and flushes out toxins.
We have recently come up with one such detox drink option which is said to be ideal for cleansing our gut health. Overeating during the Raksha Bandhan festival often leads to acidity, indigestion and more. This is where cardamom tea comes in handy.
Detox drink after Raksha Bandhan: Health benefits of cardamom tea:
According to celebrity nutritionist Lavneet Batra, “other compounds in cardamom including cineole, camphor and limonene work to support a healthy immune system”. She further explained that the tea also acts as an excellent digestive aid that “can help ease symptoms of digestive problems including indigestion, heartburn and upset stomach”.
He is not everything. Cardamom tea is also great for managing diabetes. Several studies around the world have suggested that cardamom is loaded with antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and hypolipidemic properties that can help regulate blood sugar levels in our body. It is also known to promote weight loss.
How to make cardamom tea:
To make cardamom tea, all you have to do is boil two cardamom pods in 2 cups of water. Boil until the tea is reduced to half. Filter the drip and take a sip early in the morning. It’s that easy!
so what are you waiting for? Try healthy cardamom tea today and detox yourself after enjoying Rakhi. But, always remember, moderation is the key.
